    I am alive and well,preparing for another Inventory January 28,29,and
    the 30th. If you are inquiring about the big day ( the left hip) I have my appointment this month for the 25th and we will schedule something after March 12th and hopefully before April 22nd.

    I have been pleasantly surprised with the new model 17 and Fireglocks receipe for ammo...I can't wait for my first match...(probably not till Indy). Hope all is well with you and the Mrs.;f

    Hey FESTUS; Hope old Fireglock told you the correct number of "Match Heads" to add to those loads, he sometimes forgets small details you know. ;f ;f ;f ;c ;c ;c

    Just keep old Fireglock away from all metal detectors and radar detectors. He sets off all the bells and whistles. So look out one and all. Especially after Black Voodoo under his belt.

    Sounds like me and my Cataract Surgery. I almost waited too long and it was on the verge of costing me much more than a minor surgery. Seconds opinions are good. When is the right time??????:soap:

    I agree that pain is our body's may of saying something's wrong...remember unless you are running marathons or intend to play 3 hours of tennis every other day those hip replacements now will sometimes last the rest of your life.....get another doctor:soap: ;f

    Both work great I just prefer 3.6 with Zero 147grJHP set at 1.155. I used 1.142 in my stock barrel but 1.155 works better with this load in my Bar-sto.

    All good mediators think quickly...how about 3.7? Actually that is where I am and I am too lazy to change the powder bar. Then there is the OAL....instead of 1.155 I am at 1.158....to make a long story short if I would have done this 3 years ago and went to the 17 etc. etc. etc.I could probably have at least broken 100 by now;) After two trips to the range and 1000 rounds @ 25 yards I found no bullet holes out of the perforated areas on the D1's...for me and my eyes that that was extremely good results....thanks guys keep up the mentoring;f
